"These brilliant instruments are a steal at this price point... in fact it's hard to think of any bass range that offers so much quality for so little money" - Jazzwise Magazine
Inspired by a healthy obsession with vintage basses from the swinging 60's & informed by The Bass Centre's communication with professional players & customers throughout the World, a truly iconic design has been re-imagined to blend period accurate looks & a classic sound with a modern, light weight construction & a super fast, satin finish neck.
The Portrait is a special, lined fretless variant of the hugely successful Bass Collection Jive Bass that pays particular tribute to legendary bassist Jaco Pastorius.

In addition, the 2014 model Jive Bass features the Babicz Full Contact Hardware bridge as standard issue. Courtesy of its patented "eCam" Saddle technology, this unique design system enhances sustain and harmonic response as well as providing enhanced stability and precision adjustment to string height and intonation.
With its cool retro features, authentic tone, superb build quality, flawless finish & expert set-up, The Jive Bass is an affordable, pro-grade instrument that represents astonishing value for money & is genuinely regarded as being consistent with instruments three times the price.
